Courchevel Mini Pass includes Bouc Blanc Chairlift – Gamechanger?
The poorly advertised Courchevel Mini-Pass is a useful option for beginners and first time skiers for their first few days (but check with your ski school), but also for those arriving in resort mid afternoon who fancy a few runs to get their ski legs back.
The above map (which is still included on the lift company website) shows only the La Tania gondola included on our side of the mountain although red run skiers could head down to Le Praz and link in to 1850 via the Praz gondola where the major lifts of Verdons and Pralong are included. A bus back to La Tania is required after skiing down to Le Praz (buses run from Le Praz to La Tania every 15-25 minutes for Winter 2023 – timetable here).
We weren’t aware that the Bouc Blanc chairlift is included on the mini-pass meaning you can ski via green runs to 1850 and use the excellent beginner slopes of Ferme / Altiport for example. Apologies if this has always been the case but it’s just come to our attention.
It certainly opens up a decent amount of skiing for an afternoon even if staying on the La Tania side.
The mini-pass costs €34 – no reduction for kids, pensioners or half-day discounts (under 5s and over 75s get a free 3 Valleys season pass).
Courchevel one-day €65 (kids under 13 €52)
Courchevel 4 hour €55 (kids under 13 €44)
3 Valleys one-day €72 (kids under 13 €57.60)
3 Valleys 4 hour €63 (kids under 13 €50.40)
Thanks to Andy L for the heads up.
